His visionary outlook at the world involves supporting early stage tech solutions that has a focus on creating real social impact to the world.

Ho Nam thoughts about Carbon Grid Protocol:

“Carbon Grid Protocol has a real potential to change the way how we account for our carbon footprint. In the past, we have always been so reliant on middlemen and more than often, we know it has created inefficiencies. Blockchain has given a chance for decentralisation to happen, and for a non-biased, standardised way to measure and account for carbon emission. Carbon Grid may be an ambitious project to tackle this space and no doubt, may meet with challenges from both the regulatory side and adoption side. But I am confident that Andy and his team, given their track record, will have the tenacity and creativity to go further and beyond these challenges.”
